Need a jacket for the testing demands of your mountain adventures? Introducing our latest XT Ultralight Women’s Down Jacket – your insulating mid layer for alpine explorations. Exceptionally warm for its lightweight makeup and with a slim fit, wear it under a shell or on its own.
I hand washed mine for the first time n it’s all ruined. All the feathers or wool just got collected in the corners and big lumps . Looks ugly. Is there any way to fix it. I loved the jacket .

This is a common occurrence - do not fear - your jacket is not ruined!
The most important part when washing a down jacket is actually the drying process.
We recommend washing your jacket again as per the care instructions and then once the wash is complete, carefully remove your down jacket — it'll be heavy — and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. As you do this, gently fluff up the down.
It’ll take around 24–48 hours to drip dry depending on the weather conditions. As it dries, keep giving it the occasional fluff, particularly around any wet clumps of down.
When the down jacket is almost dry, put it in the tumble drier on a low heat and check it regularly. To maximise the loft of your down jacket, throw in two to three tennis balls, or Granger’s reusable drying balls. This will really help fluff up your down jacket.

Is it your warmest jacket? Amongst the lightest?
Asked by: Cyrielle
This jacket is incredibly warm for it's weight as it uses 800 loft down & is also 1 of the very lightest in our range.
In terms warmth, thicker = warmer & this jacket is designed as a mid-layer piece so isn't at the very top end of our warmth scale.
